1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Some ideas (arising from those Gucci's mentioned):
    • Pants with largest waist/inseam spread (i.e. widest shortest man)
    • SC with the shortest t-rex arms
    • Pants with largest waist size with a Slim fit tag on them

    I'm in, as long as the list is do-able, like the example you gave. Reasonably easy-to-find stuff so I don't get too frustrated and further depressed, haha, ah.
    I normally don't do t-shirts, but these are awesome! I think '70s medium might do me just fine...

    Unavailable:

    My one find from the weekend (only went out once, today on a last-minute whim on the way home from the museum). Keeping, since it's a much-needed staple that fits well even though marked M:

    Spoo definitely In. We should set up another thread for it as to not bog this one down. Also we should figure out some way that there can be prizes!

    "Pants with largest waist size with a Slim fit tag on them"

    I'm in on the scavenger hunt! Will this be limited to clothing or will other categories such as bags or records be included?

    Had to look this up as I had never heard of the 2.0.

    (Also that lens is missing the front piece anyways so would not have been worth it anyways.

    ^ none are drakes, but all are great ties!

    -----

    Glad you are all down for a scavenger hunt. I think it would be fun. And yes, all items found in a thrift shop will be included. Ive got some great ideas already, but look forward to hearing more suggestions.

    +1 I thought the Hand Made in England label was a Drakes thing. Does it have an MD on the content tag? I thought T&A made the RLPL ties. Could be wrong though.

    Would it be only finding not necessarily purchasing? Because a bunch of the options people are throwing out I am not wasting money on... I agree we should create a new thread for this as well.

    +1. I was thinking maybe a cell phone pic of the item and maybe hold a small piece of paper in front of the said item with your SF user name?

    It is not a given, but I have seen it on private label pieces for Bullock & Jones and such.
